BRIDGER VALLEY — It was another day at the net for both the Lyman High School and Mountain View High School volleyball teams yesterday in their opening play at the state tournament in Casper.
The Mountain View Buffalos opened the game play at the state tournament of the Valley by taking on the Douglas Bearcats yesterday at 1 p.m. The Lyman High School Eagles went to the net against the Rawlins Outlaws at 4 p.m. yesterday. Both games were on the docket after the Pioneer’s press time. If Mountain View won yesterday, they would play the winner of the Worland/Star Valley game today. If Lyman won yesterday, today they would play the winner of the Torrington/Riverton game. If either Valley team lost, they would be sent to the consolation bracket for today’s play.
The Riverton Wolverines took first and the Star Valley Braves took second at the 3A west regional tournament. The Lyman Eagles claimed third place and the Mountain View Buffalos took 4th place.
Both teams took knocks at the regional tournament in Riverton last week and were bounced into the consolation bracket. And as the luck of the draw played out, the two teams met in their final game of the tournament vying for third place on Saturday. The Lyman Eagles were able to scratch out the win in four sets, with three close sets: 25-20, 25-14, 24-26, 25-21.
